was that the french fleet was a very, very large fleet. many battleships to it was the fourth largest navy in the world. and churchill was very worried that if france was conquered, then hitler would see these the french fleet. and the arithmetic was if you put the german fleet, which was considerable. they had the bismarck coming along, together with the italian fleet which was an ally of the germans and at a considerable fleet in the mediterranean, if you then put that together with the french fleet which was the fourth largest fleet in the world, now you have a navy that was larger than the british fleet. and if that happened, it's a game set and match for britain. they couldn't have controlled the sea lanes to the island. it was going to be over. so churchill implored him to keep fighting because he was worried about the french battleships. but the french army was totally in disarray. very overwhelmingly conquered, and a certain element in france decided it was better to try to come to an agreement if it was the germans about how they could then drop out of the war. an interesting litt
of world war ii the royal navy was the world's biggest navy. also was irrelevant. it was powerful but they didn't understand aircraft carriers, they underestimated submarines and they thought battleships were still central to maritime operation. the royal navy does nothing worth remembering in world war ii. is a total drain on the british. when mitt romney was talking about the size of the navy during one of the debate, i thought you want to read paul kennedy year. just because we have a big powerful navy doesn't mean it is the right navy. what you want of a relevant force? april and force down the road is going to look very different than it does today. but i think the place to begin with pretty severe budget cuts that make people stop and think. >> we have had so many great questions and i know we can go all night but we only have time for one more and tom will talk to a lot of you individually as well. you, sir. >> perfect segue. i'm a navy captain of the naval academy. also co-founder of a forum to study warfare and wondering if you could comment or everything what you said ab

about the british navy did after world war i, britain had won that war, don't say sharply the navy, capital ships, sailors and the like. however, the government agency running the navy increased in size. so he came with parkinson's law and that his organization said expand, the amount of work they have to do and have nothing to do with their size beard if you let them expand their will. on the case of government any other organizations left alone will fall into this, lucite but why they were created to become self-interested, inward turning. the nice thing about free markets as if you have a company that does that, you cease to exist. you don't have the government to keep you going. >> if you were the president, you go to zero-based budgeting. >> it's more than budgets. it's great and the environment for entrepreneurship can flourish. for example, one of the things we discuss is degrading the value of the dollar. it's about consumer price index. it's about coercion. suddenly your government takes resources from you without taxation, without borrowing. it disrupts contracts you may

[applause] >> thanks for your leadership on this project which as you sit goes back decades, and i do appreciate all of you coming here today for what is a truly critical juncture for the nature and terms of our national security. our economic viability and continuing leadership role overseas. it was in response to a routine question more than years ago when i first link to these concerns. you ask me what is the greatest threat to the united states security. as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff i got asked that all the time. i answered in two words, that. i think i surprised him. today 50 former senior national security officials served across eight presidential administrations and formed the coalition to s
between the united states and europe. the president ordered them built in 1940 but the navy decided that was probably not a good idea, so they convinced the president that the scarce resources that were available at that time would be better spent on destroyers. i think, if you look at the record you will see that probably was a good idea. the destroyer escort is sort of a novel type of vessel. is smaller than a destroyer, around 300 feet and it had a shorter turning radius so that it could essentially turn on a dime compared to a destroyer. so what they did is they escorted the convoys across the atlantic and the convoys consisted of troop ships and supplied ships for the war effort but if they made contact with the u-boat they could break off in the naked turso's -- ers to that u-boat. when you look at the record, 70 u-boats, they probably were without question the most successful anti-submarine festival on the fleet. this ship is the uss later. it was built in the tampa shipyard for 563 to destroyer escorts build and 17 shipyards all across the country. this was 1944. as they had
increased promotional activity at old navy, and these two things got the sell-off ball rolling. to me, the idea of dumping gap just because november was a bit worse than expected is insane. first of all, this november was a real aberrant month. you had unseasonably warm weather on the west coast, sandy on the east coast, and these monthly numbers are notoriously choppy. don't give you a good read on business and so many have stopped releasing monthly figures and also there was just an annuity for hedge funds, and historically, november same store sales numbers, not a good predictor of what happens in december, which is what we care about now. as for the worries about promotional activity at old navy, goldman sachs did channel checks, found no unusual promotional activity. the company still looks spot on, ta-dah, so if the reasons for the sell-off are overblown, what should we care about when it comes to gap? i have to come back to the strength of the turnaround and how this is still in its early stages. gap spent a decade in the wilderness, but last year under leadership of glen murph

[laughter] which is my point. i spoke with the chinese admirals interpreter. i spoke with admiral commander in english, a great conversation. but never was the bridge build or even considered. and i think one of the key issues here, with respect to china as they emerge, as a real leading nation is the ability to build bridges, to communicate to build strategic trust and cooperation, to enable every forum, the east asian summit, asian, and others, all bilateral come multilateral relationships in order to keep the volume as well as possible spent last year i had the privilege of interviewing henry kissinger about his book on china

in taxes compared to there and come. you also have to realize that we have a navy that is controlling the seas for free trade and get the people who use them do not pay for it. there should be some kind of a small import-export tax that would help to pay for the large navy we have protecting these seas. as far as social security, you need to take the cap off and a means test the people that get it. if a man is a millionaire, he does not need that $2,000 in social security or medicare. they have the means to pay their own way. i know if i was a millionaire, i would not worry about $2,000. thank you. host: are collaring upper range of issues including the navy and social security. guest: start with the tax issue. maybe something that may come for americans is that we have two really popular bipartisan commission's trying to deal with our long-term budget, the simpson-bowles commission and the rivlin domenici commission spotted by the bipartisan policy center. then members of congress or former members from both sides of the island they both agreed on the tax code that the best thing we
